2021 Nikon Small World and Small World in Motion scientific imaging competition

Nikon Small World is the leading photographic competition for imagery taken through the light microscope. It's one of the longest running and most prestigious photographic competitions with a gallery of thousands of winning microscope images dating back to 1975. The Nikon Small World in Motion branch of the competition was added in 2011 for MOVIES taken through the microscope.

Show us your Science - UA gallery

The UA Health Sciences Connect team is calling on faculty, staff and students to share the beautiful images you’ve captured under the microscope with the rest of the campus community.
 
The UA Health Sciences Connect team will review submissions and will use them to create a new photo gallery celebrating you, our researchers, and the beauty of science.
 
This call for images was inspired by this photo gallery on Health Sciences

RII - Core Facilities Pilot Program (April 2021)

Applications are accepted through UA Competition Space. The CFPP is designed to support three key types of activity within the RII-managed core facilities. Each CFPP proposal will be evaluated on scientific merit and feasibility, and should focus on one or more of the following activity types:

Annual Hitachi Electron Microscopy Scholarship (UA)

The Kuiper Materials Imaging and Characterization Facility (https://kmicf.lpl.arizona.edu) is pleased to announce an annual scholarship in electron microscopy. This scholarship is established by Hitachi High-Technologies as part of their partnership with University of Arizona. Funds in the amount of $5,000 per year have been provided and will be awarded equally to two graduate students generating cutting-edge research and publications in the area of electron microscopy.

RII Core Facilities Pilot Program (Jan 2021)

The CFPP is designed to support three key types of activity within the RII-managed core facilities. Each CFPP proposal will be evaluated on scientific merit and feasibility, and should focus on one or more of the following activity types:

Your feedback requested

The UA Microscopy Alliance website (http://microscopy.arizona.edu/) was built to make it easier for anyone to find the core facilities, microscopes, and experts on the UA campus. The website launched in the fall of 2013 and we are getting ready to build the next generation of the website.

Digital Image Editing Ethics - Zeiss webinar

Digital images are scientific data, with many of the same strengths and weaknesses as other types of instrument-acquired information. Unfortunately, scientists rarely receive formal training in how to appropriately work with image data. This can lead to image processing mistakes or the use of unscientific folklore which has been handed down as knowledge. As problematic as these kinds of errors may be for science, it is when the line is crossed from “honest error” to fraud that is of major concern for the entire scientific community.

RII Core Facility pilot grants - due July 15, 2020

The RII Core Facilities Pilot Program (CFPP) is designed to support three key types of activity within the RII-managed core facilities:

National image analysis survey - help direct the development of open source software tools

You may have recently seen the Center for Open Bioimage Analysis (COBA, https://www.openbioimageanalysis.org/) name and logo around various parts of the image.sc forum (https://forum.image.sc/); we are a new center from Kevin Eliceiri and Anne Carpenter's labs whose mission is to serve the biology community’s growing need for sophisticated software for light microscopy image analysis.
